The three sets listed above are your work sets with the last set being a "rep out". This means that you'll perform as many reps as you can with good form. Keep 1-2 reps in the tank on these, you should be confident that every rep you attempt will go up.
These percentages are based off of 90% of your true 1RM. So if your 1RM Press was 100lbs, you would be doing 85% of 90lbs for the last set. Please come to the gym prepared with your numbers.
If you don't have established 1RMs and are a new trainee, you'll be doing 3 sets across at the same work weight.
